Lahore: England will tour Pakistan in September for the first time in 17 years to play seven Twenty20 and three test matches in two spells, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced Tuesday.

As per official announcement, England T20I team led by Jos Buttler will play seven games from September 20 to October 2 in Karachi and Lahore— in what will be their first visit of the country in 17 years. 

It is pertinent to mention here that England pulled out of their Pakistan tour last year soon after New Zealand had abandoned their tour over security concerns.

After the T20 World Cup in Australia, England will return to play the tests in December, the PCB said in a statement, adding that the schedule of these matches would be shared later. 

The National Stadium will host the matches on 20, 22, 23 and 25 September, before the action will shift to the cricket headquarters at the Gaddafi Stadium where the remaining three matches will be played on 28 and 30 September and 2 October. 

New Zealand will also return to Pakistan in December for the first leg of their tour. 

Moreover, the PCB will also host a three-match T20 series against West Indies in January. 

Apart from five Tests, eight ODIs and 15 T20Is in the 2022-23 season, Pakistan will also stage 187 men's domestic matches in six senior competitions, 33 Pakistan Super League 2023 fixtures and 19 Pakistan Junior League 2022 games.
